Into the Stars, a stunning open-world journey through a distant solar system, has only one day left in its Kickstarter campaign, and nearly 4,000 backers have already pushed the game well past its $85,000 goal. Developed by Fugitive Games, Into the Stars allows you to captain your very own ship and guide an inexperienced crew through the dangerous depths of space. The game has been Greenlit by the Steam Community and is expected to release this summer. We’ve partnered with the developers to bring you the Official Into the Stars Wiki, a bountiful resource for game information and updates.
Who has never envisioned themselves as a brave captain, making tough decisions from their seat on the bridge? Would you be a level-headed negotiator or an aggressive, alien-crushing leader? Well – here’s your chance to find out. In Into the Stars, you’ll command the Ark 13, the only human vessel remaining after 10 years of brutal, devastating alien attacks. Your crew is inexperienced, the terrain is unknown, and it’s all on your shoulders. You’ll need to evade enemies, gather resources, and monitor the conditions of your entire crew and the civilians aboard your ship. Game features include:
- Volley-based combat – Not every alien species you encounter will be open to trade, and you can expect for negotiations to sometimes go south pretty quickly. Your ship is equipped with several weapon systems, and you’ll need to choose your target points and battle stations wisely.
- Original score – The game features an original soundtrack from Jack Wall, the guy behind the music for Mass Effect, Call of Duty, and Lost Planet. It’s going to be epic!
- Six skill categories – Your crew will gain experience in Engineering, Piloting, Command, Medical, Toughness, and Mining. With crew permadeath, you’ll have to approach combat and landing parties with care. Is the possibility of losing a crew member worth the risk?
